The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.

Whenever Ez goes to the local museum, he indulges one of his real enthusiasms: that for decapod crustaceans of all shapes and sizes.

He loves crabs. Adores them. Cyclograpsus granulosus, Paragrapsus quadridentatus, Dittosa laevis, Mictyris platycheles, Pilumnus fissifrons and his absolutely, completely, utterly, UNQUESTIONABLY favourite of all, the good ol' Ovalipes australiensis!

Well, when he comes home later in life and tells you he has crabs...you won't be surprised!
